# 1 No head start for aussies
01-29-2010, 07:18 PM
I've been looking around for a place to preorder and get access to headstart but in australia no game retailers were given preorder keys.

Very disapointed at this considering the game is being marketted here.

You mean retail version, because your best bet would be to get a digital edition from website like direct2drive.

Many places are your just not looking hard enough. I know you probably cant get it retail but if you can try looking through steam, impulse or D2D.

I went Steam and it's worked perfectly. Not sure about STO specifically but I know most games from Direct2Drive are locked to only sell in the US and/or UK, so it's pretty terrible for Australians.

The main game stores in australia EBgames and GAME have said no preorder keys were released

So yeah I didn't want to go digital but might have to I guess

I also visited a few big department stores with no luck also

Just buy a digital download and then contact Cryptic customer service. I'll bet you a chunk of cash they will give you a head start key if you can validate your purchase.
